9:44 pm
position. he dove to the opposite side and boozer got outside position over the top. neil: boozer in the air. hits the first. stacey: if you are dwane casey you will put it in calderon's hands and let him operate. he is making the right basketball plays. neil: 100-100 with 1:19 left. calderon calderon. nowhere to go and he threw it away. deng winds up. short.
